Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It's possible that the problem could be with the receiver on the vehicle but it's not that likely. It's much more likely that the problem is with the fob itself.

If you have a second fob you can try it to see if it works. If so then you know the problem is with the fob that doesn't work.

If you don't have a second fob available then the next step will be to have this one tested to see if it's transmitting. Most big chain parts stores such as Autozone will test fob for free, if it isn't transmitting then it will need to be replaced.
